I can’t help but notice all those articles proclaiming mistakes we should try to avoid in order to become a better photographer. Admittedly, I have issues with such an approach. First of all: I hate the word “should”. Basically we “should” nothing. Secondly, there is not much learning in avoiding mistakes — we learn best from our mistakes and the more bittersweet they are the more carved into our memory they become. So here are some mistakes I genuinely recommend you to commit. I cannot promise they will make you a better photographer but the likelihood of you making those mistakes again will hopefully be reduced.
We all make tons of mistakes as photographers, but naturally, we tend to make more of them when we’re just starting out. While learning from our own mistakes is effective, it’s a painstaking process.

Hopefully, they will help you skip making them yourself and you’ll improve your photography skills.
